In 1987 Brenton first appeared, as a journalist, in the two part telemovie 'The Four Minute Mile' along side Michael York. This led to appearances in the long running Australian TV series 'Neighbours' and in 'All The Way', as well as TV commercials in the late 1980's.
In 1991 he turned his focus to live performances as the magician 'The Black Fantasm' and 'Bento the Magic Clown', for which he won numerous awards through the Magic Circle of Victoria, for which he has recently been nominated to be president for 2014/2015.
He continued his studies in the film and television industry through Film and Television Studios International, under the training of Jenny Lovell, Harley Aimes, Jan Russ and Craig MacMahon, and later under Belinda Sharp through Screen Actors Melbourne West.
His most notable acting experiences include 'The Four Minute Mile' (1987), 'Flat Out' (1989), Kidcrusher's 'Alice in Zombieland' music video (2013), 'Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla' (2013), 'Fight Like a Girl: From Parts Unknown' (2014) and will be seen in 2015 in the TV series 'Delta Force: Hard Kill' on Chanel 31.
Brenton is also a screenwriter, working on several feature films scripts.
"Appearing in 'The Legend of Ben Hall' is an exciting experience. This movie promises to be one of the most prestigious film making projects of the year."
